    “FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

    “There will be times, girl, when all your magic ain’t going to be enough, times when it will seem to dry up like mud under the noonday sun, or even make matters worse. . . .” Kallie Rivière, a fiery Cajun hoodoo apprentice with a talent for trouble, finds herself smack-dab in the middle of one of those times her mentor warned her about when she visits New Orleans to attend the Hecatean Alliance’s annual carnival: her hard-bodied conjurer hookup ends up dead in her blood-drenched bed. And he was killed by something that Kallie would never dream of touching—the darkest of dark juju, soul-eating juju—a black dust hex that may have been meant to kill her.

    Now Kallie has to use every bit of hoodoo knowledge and bayou-bred mojo she possesses to clear her own name and find the killer—even as that dark sorcerer hunts Kallie and her friends. But Kallie’s search for the truth soon leads her in a direction she never anticipated—back home to Bayou Cyprés Noir, and to Gabrielle LaRue, Kallie’s aunt, protector, and hoodoo mentor . . . who is looking more and more like she just might be the one who wants Kallie dead.”

    My Thoughts:

    Adrian Phoenix hits another ball out of the park with Black Dust Mambo! 🙂 I was completely engrossed by the characters, the story, the rich atmosphere and the fast pace.

    This book is the first in a new series by Adrian Phoenix, author of The Makers Song series, and I am completely hooked. Kallie is a wonderful character who I was rooting for all the way. Layne, well… can I say I want one just like him? *Grins* Anyone who’s been following my blog for a while knows that I am a huge fan of Adrian’s writing and of the lady herself. She has an affinity for creating a world on paper that is so richly detailed that you feel like you are there with the characters, watching things go down like it’s a movie.

    Fast paced, wonderful plot, danger, excitement, romance, mystery and a few deaths mixed in with the paranormal, hoodoo, voodoo and a super sexy Nomad, well… alls I can say is I WANT MORE! (And when does the next book come out?) I highly recommend this book to fans of both Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance with some New Orleans’/Louisiana spice.

    Ugh! This has pretty much been me for the last week. I had my touch-up’s done on my dragon fairy tattoo and added a little something that you’ll see when it’s all healed and I post the picture. 🙂 (That’s the only good thing to come out of last week!) Went to the doctor twice last week, had x-rays done on my knee and heel, am super dazed from some new, strong allergy meds and was pretty much in the same shape as that poor Ram in the graphic thanks to a not so lovely virus. Yep, Sidhe is sick and still fighting it. Bleh…

    So no, I’m not dead, lol, just sleeping a lot! I read a few amazing books and hope to get my reviews up shortly. I have author Bernita Harris here on Wednesday guest blogging along with a giveaway to celebrate the release of her book, Dark And Disorderly! I just wanted to let you all know what’s up with my recent M.I.A. status. I hope you’re all doing awesome and reading amazing books.
